Czech driver fails another dope test

11:20 am on 20 June 2012

The Czech motor racing driver Tomas Enge has been suspended for failing a dope test, a decade after a similar result scuppered his hopes of competing in Formula One.

The 35-year-old, who drives a Lamborghini in the sportscar world championship, returned a positive test from a race in Spain last month, after he'd asked for an exemption to allow him to take certain medicines.

Enge was stripped of his title in a formula one feeder series in 2002 after testing positive for cannabis.

No Formula One driver has ever failed a drugs test.
